Hey Litsy! As if it‘s been 9 months since I‘ve been on here!
Are you all still enjoying Litsy?
I‘ve JUST finished The Hating Game and loved it. I‘m in a contemporary romance mood ATM!

chaoticgoodhufflepuff Welcome back! 📚🎉📚 5mo
BeckyK @chaoticgoodhufflepuff Thank you! 👋🏻 5mo
sebrittainclark I loved it too! I've been listening to a lot of contemporary romances recently. I really enjoyed the Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren and Fix Her Up by Tessa Bailey. 5mo

Turns out that I read super fast on holiday! Must be the lack of home based distractions such as adult life etc...
I read this in a day! The last time I did this was Harry Potter 😂
I‘m not 100% sure how I feel about this book. I enjoyed it and obviously flew through it but I can‘t decide if the ending was a good twist or a cop out?! 🤔
Thoughts Littens??

GatheringBooks i wasn‘t too happy with this one either. wrote my review here: https://wp.me/pDlzr-cxb 1y
Mdargusch I can see what you mean by a cop out but I really liked the twist and this book. Enjoy your vacation! 1y

Hey Littens!
It‘s been a whiiiiile!
I‘ve deactivated my social media apart from Litsy. It‘s not good for my mental health, but I always feel the love here! I think this is such a supportive and kind place 😊 currently reading The Cows. Is my first Dawn O‘Porter book and I‘ve heard great things so far!

Shemac77 I‘ve been debating getting rid of my other social media as well. Glad it‘s worked well for you! 1y
Ms_T I completely agree with you about it being bad for your mental health. Glad you‘re still enjoying Litsy 😃 1y
BeckyK @Shemac77 Just do it! I felt so stressed at the idea of it, then I realised that‘s why I should! It‘s great now. Made me realise how often I was on it and how much stuff I did just to put on :) 1y

A little about the book I‘m reading ⬆️
I‘m enjoying it so far. I‘m a little under a 3rd of the way through. I like the characters but I‘d like them to be explored a bit better. So I hope we go further in depth. I‘m enjoying the story too. I can just marine Violet sat in her wheelchair, typing away and dreaming of far off lands. The POV changes quite a lot but not too much! I‘ll review properly when I‘m finished 😊

Ermmmmm. I‘m only on chapter 2 and I‘m not sure how I feel about Eleanor. Does she get better?

Cosyreader Her personality and the way she speaks to people doesn‘t change but it does get better. I struggled to begin with because I thought she was just rude, but you find out later why she is the way she is. It‘s worth the read 🙂 2y

Hey Littens, I‘m having a bit of a weird time the moment, I‘m so up and down with my mental health, and I was wondering if any of you had some uplifting/warm/cosy/feel good book recommendations. I want something that will make me smile and doesn‘t require too much brain power. Thanks in advance you lovely bunch ❤️

Velvetfur Hmmm, how about The Alchemist by Paolo Coelho? If you haven't already read it, that is.... I found it quite uplifting 😊 Oh, and....hugs to you at a difficult time xxx 2y

Jess7 Anything written by Fredrik Backman is my goto feel good type book. Also maybe something light like a Rainbow Rowell Book would be good. I‘ll tag @britt_brooke for more suggestions. 🤗🤗 (((hugs))) 2y
Kalalalatja I really loved the Fairyland series by Catherynne Valente. It is a children‘s series, but there‘s so much for adults to enjoy, and it definitely gave me a lot of good feelings! Hope you feel better 💕 2y
BeckyK @Jess7 Thank you 😘 2y
BeckyK @Kalalalatja Aww I love that title. Thank you 😊 2y
britt_brooke @Jess7 Thanks - and I agree Backman and Rowell are good suggestions. I‘d also say Robin Sloan‘s books, especially Mr. Penumbra, though Sourdough is good, too. 84, Charing Cross Road is very charming and heart-warming. I recently enjoyed When Dimple Met Rishi. Sending hugs @Beckykearns ❣️❣️ 2y
BeckyK @britt_brooke Thank you so much. Lots of recommendations 😊 2y
RainyDayReading I hope you start feeling better! Not sure that it would be in your reading tastes, but I typically reach for a middle grade/ an old favorite when I need something to make me smile. Like Harry Potter and the Sorcerer‘s Stone by J.K. Rowling or The Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan. 2y

Hey, #ConanDoyleSwap participants! All of the matches are out now! 🎉
This is my first swap and I‘m not very Google forms savvy, so please let me know if anything is unclear, and let me know if you have any tips for exporting and emailing form responses a bit better than I have done 😊 I‘m so excited for this swap! Thank you for signing up. I‘m going to start stalking once I‘ve had a post travelling nap 😊😘❤️🎉🔍

Sophoclessweetheart Oh! Hah 😹 You‘re my match!! Wonderful! Hello 👋 2y
CSeydel Yay, thank you! Do we keep our match a surprise, or let them know? (edited) 2y
CSeydel Haha never mind ... it‘s in the email 😊 2y

BeckyK @Wanderingwithwords I know! I thought when you commented on the other post, I was like ‘she DEFINITELY has a match‘ 🙈😂 2y
BeckyK @CSeydel Yep, a 1:1 swap. Get stalking 😊 2y
Sophoclessweetheart 😹😹 I love it! I‘m stalking already and picking out gifts. Obviously I HAVE to impress being matched with the host 😝💛 2y

Hey Littens! I‘ve had the best long weekend with my friends for a Hen Do 😊 I‘m doing the matches for the #ConanDoyleSwap now so if you could reply to my email with a confirmation of receiving your match I‘d be grateful. If any of you haven‘t received your match by 6pm BST then let me know 😊❤️📚

Sophoclessweetheart Yay! How exciting! X 2y
Sarah83 I didn't get an email 🤷 2y
BeckyK @Sarah83 God I‘m being so slow. I decide to do it on my iPad and massively regretted it. It crashed every time I sent an email 😫 I‘ve moved to the laptop and you‘re next :) 2y

Sarah83 Ok. 😉 My email address is sometimes a bit stupid, so I just was unsure. 😉 2y
slightlyfoxed I haven‘t received an email either. 2y
BeckyK @slightlyfoxed You‘re in 5 matches time, should have an email within 15, sorry for the delay. Stupid iPad :) 2y
slightlyfoxed @Beckykearns No problem, just me compulsively checking my email and worrying. 2y
Sophoclessweetheart I haven‘t received anything yet either 😰💛 2y
BeckyK @Wanderingwithwords Not to worry, sorry it‘s taking me so long! Should have it in 15. I‘m obviously way slower than I thought 🙈 2y
Sophoclessweetheart Okay Hun, 😚 Just checking c 2y

I‘m so sorry Littens but I think matches might have to be Monday morning. I had a day off yesterday pre-hen do but ended up being so busy 😫 I‘ll try and get it done on the flight and typed up and then send the emails before Monday but to prevent disappointing you twice, I‘ll say Monday and then any earlier is a bonus 😊 I hope I haven‘t inconvenienced you too much! 😊😘❤️📚

@marywag08 Your #FeedAReader is on its way to you from cloudy England. I‘m so sorry you got let down by your original match but hopefully a nice book and a few scrummy English recipes will make up for the wait you‘ve had 😊❤️📚

BeckyK @marywag08 You‘re so welcome! 😊 2y

This book is taking me a while, I do want to know what happens but I‘m not that excited about it, and some of the descriptions are gross 😷

Sophoclessweetheart This looks so snug! I‘m sorry you‘re book isn‘t quite doing it. I‘m feeling the same with mine and at that, I‘m loving it! Just craving something else right now x 2y
BeckyK I‘m super cosy 😊 thanks! Me too, I think I need something lighter. Between this and Fight Club I need a good old Chic lit 😂 2y

Littens I have an uneven number of swap entries, so I‘m leaving the form open until I get an even number!! 😊 please share or tag anyone you think would enjoy it. 1-2 books and a treat or 2. Open to everyone and matches will go out this Thursday 😊❤️📚

Sophoclessweetheart I‘ve signed up x 2y
Tove_Reads Dammit, missed another swap 😞 2y
BeckyK @Tove_Reads Awww I‘m sorry! Currently confirming if someone is taking part due to there being no one else in her country doing the swap. If she decides not to then I‘ll open the form for you if you like? If she takes part then I‘m happy to open it for you if you know anyone else that would join so I have an even number 😊 xx 2y
Tove_Reads No worries, there‘s always a next time!@ 2y
BeckyK @Tove_Reads No probs 😊 2y

Hey, @Knightingale I‘ve sent you an email regarding the #ConanDoyleSwap 😊 not sure if I would have gone to spam or junk. Nothing to worry about, just a quick question.

Just a few hours left before I close the form for my #ConanDoyleSwap guys 😊😊 I‘ll close it at 10pm BST to give time for any international Littens that haven‘t had chance yet!
Don‘t forget to tag me in any posts relating to the swap, I want to see what everyone‘s getting up to 😍😍 and I‘ll put out a few this or thats and questions to help the stalking 😊❤️📚
